3 ingredient Cashew Cream Cheese

I don’t know what took me so long to try this.

I guess a big part of it was that I never realized how simple it was.

Cashew Cream Cheese

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup raw cashews
  2. 3 probiotic capsules
  3. 1/4 cup filtered water (chlorine in tap water can disrupt/inhibit enzyme/culturing activity).

Directions:

  1. Soak 1 cup cashews overnight 
  2. Drain & rinse cashews, then blend in a food processor along with 1/4 cup water for a couple minutes (add additional water by the tsp as necessary to blend – but you’ll want it as thick as possible)
  3. Place in a glass or ceramic dish, cover with a clean cloth/towel and let sit at room temperature for 18-24 hours

That’s it! It’s so simple. You can also flavor it as desired (roasted garlic, chives, caramelized onions, jalapenos etc.)

Happy to be able to enjoy the occasional bagel & cream cheese again!

(the other half of the bagel had cream cheese + tomato + cucumber but it was so good I ate it without capturing it first! Haha

Give it a try! Let me know what you think and what meals you use it for!

Cheers 🙂
